Selecting a therapist to trust can be daunting. As in any relationship, there must be a good match on many levels. New clients often ask me, "What is your technique?" In my twenty-five plus years of experience, I have learned not to apply a blueprint of "one-size fits all," but to focus upon the particular problems, and stressors that have brought you to seek help. My clients have expressed appreciation for my pro-active style; I am compassionate but not passive during sessions. My training in both hypnosis and mindfulness has given me unique tools to help my clients when appropriate.

It hurts every day- despite you doing the best you can to distract yourself, the minute you stop pre-occupying yourself with distractions, you connect immediately with that emotional pain inside and the emptiness and alienation. The emotional pain comes from disconnection. You don’t feel your partner is responsive and present with you. You don’t feel wanted and needed or important. When you try to address this, it doesn't go anywhere, or you end up having a fight, which makes you feel even more devastated and distant from each other. You work so hard and give so much, you are still feeling not good enough and get no acknowledgement.

I remember going to my first therapist, and thinking “I have to go back to places I’ve already survived?” You do not have to go backwards, though sometimes we have to feel to heal. With over 30 years of experience, I compassionately help guide you experientially, so you can access somatic and emotional wisdom.

Life is full of uncertainty, stressors, changes, and challenges and at times these issues weigh heavy on us. Sometimes our traditional coping, resources, and knowledge are not enough to help us manage the increase in worry, distress, sadness, or relationship conflict. We may feel drained, tired, and alone, no matter how resilient or strong we are. Sometimes we experience traumatic situations that are confusing, paralyzing, and terrifying and we no longer feel safe or understand our emotional response. Any of these experiences can be overwhelming, but a supportive therapeutic relationship can be helpful at these moments.

Waitlist open for appointments before 4pm. Waitlist closed for 4pm or after. Updated February 2024. I believe that good therapy involves a combination of a supportive and warm relationship plus science-based therapeutic techniques. Within this framework I consider each person’s unique situation, neurodiversity, and set of problems and then tailor my approach to you or your child’s needs. Therapy should be a collaborative process, and I try to bring a sense of humor and fun to my work with you or your family.

Are you A GUY who feels confused and clueless about how to create a deeper emotional connection with your intimate partner? Perhaps just as important, is it possible for you to do that in a way that would not sacrifice your sense of masculinity?!? Not only is it possible for you to learn how to speak the Truth of how you feel in a way that will feel masculine, but it will also become a source of personal strength that will help you build a more mature and honest relationship with yourself and with the person you love. I have specialized in working with adult men for 35 years.

Through my experience in working with children, adolescents and their families, I have found that the most effective way to provide treatment is to do so in a non-judgmental, caring and warm environment. I use various modalities to work with the whole family unit and not just the child in dealing with the child's behavior and diagnosis. This eclectic approach to treatment include: CBT, EMDR, Love & Logic, Mindfulness, Creative Therapy, Parent Training and Play Therapy. Every child is unique and therefore, every treatment approach is specialized for that child’s unique experience.

Are you unhappy in your relationship but don't know what to do? Relationships are the most important part of our lives. Yet, they are not always easy, especially with the people closest to us. Problems arise in every couple's relationship, especially under stressful circumstances such as fertility issues, problems with children, aging parents, blending families, lack of sexual intimacy or coping with a job loss. Stressors like these can contribute to conflict, distance, and other painful relationship interactions. I understand what you are going through and know how to help you find real solutions to your relationship problems.

The fact that you're now seeking to find just the right therapist for yourself tells me you've already begun the process of confronting your personal obstacles. As a therapist, one of the first things I do-—collaboratively-—is to help you more concretely define the specific goals you wish to achieve. I then shape my interventions to help you locate the strengths and understandings that, further developed, will most efficiently enable you to accomplish this. The goals themselves might relate to solving a particular problem; improving, or changing, your relationship; healing from past psychological wounds; or perhaps improving your self-image generally.
